Live and Prerecorded Video Input
With our video processor component, streaming video feeds is a snap! Simply connect your video device or computer to the standard input and press the selected input button. Connect a camera for live video streams or a laptop or other digital video device to play prerecorded video. Easily switch between full-screen and picture-in-picture formats.
Combined with speakers and audio output, your new screen becomes a full-scale multimedia platform. Stream live presentations and movies, advertise local businesses and sporting events, and engage every member of your audience. The applications are almost endless!
Reliability is absolutely critical when everyone is watching. To ensure that your sporting events and video presentations go off without a hitch, Stewart builds redundant systems such as dual Ethernet connections into your electronic display, and all of the product’s components undergo rigorous third-party testing.
In the event that maintenance is required, Stewart makes the process painless. Using an innovative magnetic attachment system, the LED modules can be easily removed from the front of the screen for servicing.
The DayStar MVP Indoor LED Video Wall is available in two standard sizes, with a pixel pitch of 4mm or 6.67mm. Custom sizes are also available. Contact us for more information.

Discover the many differences between video walls and traditional projectors and why LED technology is the smart choice.
More and more, organizations are discovering the amazing multimedia capabilities of indoor video walls. There’s no denying the “wow factor” that LED technology has to entertain, engage and inform any audience. And over the long term, customers find video walls to be lower cost, more reliable and more versatile than traditional projection systems. Some of the benefits you can expect to see:
Brightness & Contrast
Simply put, when comparing LED video walls and projection systems, there’s no contest. Because the video wall itself emits light, colors are more vibrant and light is more brilliant. This is important because ambient light and distance can affect the quality of images the audience sees. Brightness perception is also nonlinear, which means that you need far more than twice the actual brightness for an image to appear twice as bright. So how do you compare the brightness of LED video walls and projection systems?
The brightness of an LED video wall is measured by the maximum luminance (brightness) of one square meter of the display. This unit of measurement is called a nit. With a rating of 2,000 nits, our video walls remain vivid in any kind of lighting environment. Comparing a projector’s brightness isn’t as straightforward. The overall brightness of a projector bulb is measured in lumens. As a projector gets further away from the surface it’s projecting on, brightness per square meter decreases. (Think of this as the same amount of light spread over a larger area.) A surface’s color and reflectivity also influence how much light is bounced back to the viewer. Because of this, a projector’s equivalent “nit rating” depends on its lumen output as well as its distance from the projection surface and what that surface is made of.
Even with a perfectly white surface, in order to illuminate an area the size of our most popular video wall (6’3″ x 11’7″) at 2,000 nits, you’d need a projector with an output of over 43,000 lumens!* This is more than eight times the brightness of most large-venue front projectors, which typically cost tens of thousands of dollars. Also, this light is not evenly distributed, as the center of a projected image is typically the brightest, with intensity decreasing toward the edges and corners. Contrast (the difference between dark and light areas) is directly related to brightness. As ambient light increases, the image source must become brighter to avoid looking “washed out.”
Parts & Servicing
Projector bulbs are typically rated at 3,000 to 10,000 hours of life, depending on the model and brightness settings. These bulbs emit an enormous amount of heat and will often burn out at inconvenient times. Most are very expensive to replace and have a limited shelf life, even when not in use. Dust and dirt can accumulate on projector lenses and filters, requiring routine maintenance or replacement. Even slight variations in temperature and moisture can significantly shorten product life, as can turning the projector on and off in quick succession. Many internal components cannot be self-serviced and require expensive certified technicians to fix.
By contrast, LED video walls are intended as zero-maintenance products, with no parts needing routine replacement. The LEDs themselves are rated at 100,000 hours of use, equal to more than 11 years at full brightness. Heat generation is minimal, and components are not sensitive to most indoor temperature or moisture conditions. In the unlikely event that a part should fail, servicing can be performed by pretty much anyone who can use a screwdriver!
Both front- and rear-projection systems require a clear line of sight in order to properly project images on a screen. Depending on projector type and mounting location, this area can become quite large, making a projection setup unsuitable for certain situations. Unlike front-projection systems, video walls allow presenters and equipment to be positioned directly in front without casting shadows or causing front illumination. And unlike rear-projection systems, video walls do not require dedicated projection room behind the screen.
A Word on Resolution
The number of pixels (discrete points of light) on an LED display will typically be less than that of a high-definition projector. While we can make any-size display, our standard 480-pixel-high model is less than half the pixel height of a 1080p projector. However, again, distance comes into play. Imagine looking at a high-definition TV from five feet away versus 50 feet away. At greater distances, image detail is no longer discernible. Instead, screen size and brightness become much more important. A Stewart representative can help you determine your video wall’s ideal resolution.
* The luminance required for a reflective nit rating can be calculated using the formula: (nits * meters² * π) / rf = lumens, where rf is the reflection factor from 0 (black) to 1 (white). Example: Our 6’3″ x 11’7″ video wall has a total screen area of 6.89 square meters. Assuming a perfectly white surface, an area of 6.89 m² and a target of 2,000 nits, the equation becomes (2000 * 6.89 * 3.14) / 1 = 43,269 lumens.
